Berry & Yoghurt Toffee Treat

Fat Mum Slim /

My favourite meal of the day is breakfast, and well dessert too, and I’d much prefer to celebrate with a brunch than with a dinner. I’m an early bird! A long, long, long time ago, when I was celebrating my hen’s weekend {12 years ago!} my cousin Kate made this dish for myself and my friends, and I’ve loved it ever since. Often for group breakfasts, most people light up the BBQ and serve eggs and bacon… so this is a nice change.

You could use whatever fruit you pleased, I think berries work beautifully but stone fruits would be awesome too.

You’ll have to excuse my photography skills. I was rushing, trying to get the last light of the day… and desperate to dig into this one!

Berry & Yoghurt Toffee Treat Recipe




600g thick unsweetened Greek Yoghurt

1 punnet of raspberries

1 punnet of blueberries

120g of strawberries, halved

1 cup caster sugar


  1. In a large serving dish, pour the yoghurt. Top with berries so that the surface is covered. Keep in fridge while making toffee.
  2. Place the sugar in a heavy based saucepan with 1 1/4 cups of water.
  3. Stir over a low heat until the sugar has dissolved, increase the heat to medium and cook until it turns caramel in colour. A good way to test if it’s ready, I like to get a glass of really cold water and tip in a spoonful of the toffee mix. If it goes hard straight away, it’s ready!
  4. Pour the toffee over the fruit and yoghurt, and chill. Serve.
